Texas residents may want to take note of grandparents’ rights

| Jun 11, 2015 | Uncategorized

In Texas, and elsewhere, family circumstances sometimes arise that necessitate a need for a grandparent to care for the child of his or her son or daughter. Texas families who have suffered the loss of both parents may want to note certain specifics regarding grandparents’ rights in cases where children have been left orphaned. Being aware of the law ahead of time can help alleviate stress if facing such a situation in the future.

When a child has suffered the untimely death of both parents, his or her grandparents may wish to become the main caregiver. The Texas court system will often appoint the grandparents as managing conservators in similar circumstances. This allows them to have sole decision-making authority where certain aspects of a child’s well-being are concerned, such as where the child should reside.

At Vernier & Associates, PLLC, the attorneys understand a grandparent’s need to have his or her rights protected when it comes to the future care of a grandchild. If it is made evident that a child would suffer adverse physical or emotional health in the absence of his or her grandparent, it is possible for the court to allow a grandparent to take possession of the child. Attorneys at Vernier & Associates, PLLC have experience in assisting clients in Houston and throughout the state of Texas.

When a child has already suffered the loss of his or her parents, the child’s physical health and emotional well-being are usually of the utmost importance to those involved in deciding the child’s future. Those concerned with grandparents’ rights can call the Vernier & Associates, PLLC law office to schedule a free consultation. A legal professional is prepared to answer questions and offer suggestions for how best to proceed in an individual case.
